The last panel of the UpFront of national series Netflix was with the suspense The chosen!
The series that does not have a defined premiere date yet, the recordings still happen, and will be based on a Mexican project starring the actress Paloma Bernardi.
With creation of Carolina Munhóz and Raphael Draccon., during the panel we had the presentation of the first scenes exclusively for the journalists present.
On the panel we also had confirmation that the actor Renan Tenca will live the mysterious figure of Chosen. Okay, but what will the series talk about?
The chosen will show a group of doctors arriving by boat in a remote place in the Pantanal. The first clip we saw was the group led by Bernadi’s character arriving on the island. One of the locals says that the people who live there are very reclusive and hardly get sick.
According to Munhoz, the idea of making the series came from the desire to show Brazil to the world. “We wanted to show Brazil, our beauty that exists here, the rivers, our flora and fauna…”
From what we saw at the event it looks like it worked. The chosen it seems that it will unite science and mysticism in the same plot, says Bernardi.
We had the first photo of the assembled cast released, check it out here.
The second clip showed the mysterious figure of the Chosen One in a mysterious ritual that was to save the life of an injured man. A type of priestess asks if he believed in the power of the Chosen One, the hooded figure appears and picks up a shard of glass to cut the patient.
The chosen has no premiere yet.
